Moiré Machine

Moiré Pattern Visualization Machine

Year of production: 2016

Arduino, a stepper motor, a wood frame

It is a midterm project with Cristóbal Valenzuela. We are interested in Moire pattern which makes an optical illusion. Normally, when an audience wants the illusion of movement, he moves a striped acetate overlay by his hand. At this point, we encourages people to control the speed and the direction of the striped acetate overlay. Also, by giving a auto-play mode, an audience can enjoy the Moire Pattern for a while.
